Easy track
Starting from the concrete footpath on McGilvray Close, Gordon, this walk takes you on a circuit around the Point Hut Pond via a concrete footpath. Get your daily cardio in and enjoy the scenery as your kids and dogs have some fun. Even including a playground that resembles Pisa Tower a little bit, they’ll surely be interested in the colorful slides and other attractive equipment. For you on the other hand, this relaxing stroll around the pond may be fruitful if you’re into birdwatching. Ducks, swans, turkeys and other various species can be seen throughout the journey. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
